Parchamo Peak lies to the south of Tasi Lapcha proving an attractive mountain as a straightforward snow peak.Lying close to Tibeten border,Pacharmo is not a technical climbing but on account of the altitude and the peak's remoteness it's certainly challenging. While approaching the mountain we follow Everest Base Camp trek from Lukla to Namche Bazaar. We follow the trekking trail to Thame and then Thengpo to Ngole to set up the base camp on the moraines ( 5,100m.). As we climb we arrive at another possible campsite but not advisable to set up the camp due to rock falling danger. We continue climbing north-east of the icefall of Tesi Lapcha and arrive just below the rock walls where we fix high camp on rocky terraces (5,500m.). From the high camp we gain the ridge of Pacharmo which is raised from the glaciers of Tesi Lapcha Pass. We follow the ridge without much difficulty but some time crevasses can cause some problems near to the summit.The views from the summit are stunning and extremely satisfying climax to the trip.Phil Boultbee and Dennis Davis were the first persons to climb this peak in 1955,
